The St. Clement Knights of Columbus hall was packed with people who came out to support Pike County Memorial Hospital at its annual banquet on Saturday, Nov. 17.
This year’s campaign is to renovate the Louisiana clinic in order to provide expanded and improved services to patients.
During the evening, Tami Schneidler, Clinics Director, spoke to the audience about what the clinic’s renovation will look like and expressed her appreciation to the community for supporting the hospital.
“The services that we offer do matter to our patients and our community. What you’re doing tonight truly will impact patient lives,” she said. “I’m also very excited to announce that we’re going to be offering services of a general surgeon very soon.”
Schneidler ended her remarks by saying, “The community support tonight will help our clinic expand to meet the needs in our community and to keep primary and specialty care services local for our patients.”
Rachel Harris, Family Nurse Practitioner, also spoke about the upcoming clinic renovation and how it will benefit the community the hospital serves.
“Adding additional rooms will greatly help our productivity and enable us to care for more patients. Another great thing about the renovation is that we can hopefully bring in more specialists in the future that would meet the needs in the community,” Harris said.
